Darek Seidel. Kitchen Islands. April 26th , 2020.
This surface allows you to prepare bulky items like dough, or transfer foods from the oven to cool before serving. Its height is usually at the waist level or higher.
The moment you store your groceries, utensils, dishes and electrical appliances in your kitchen, it is clear that despite the abundant storage space, you have very little workspace. Think of the moments you are many cooks in the kitchen; there is literally not enough space. It is for this reason that designers came up with the kitchen island.
Complex islands feature a sink and a disposal unit for preparing fruits and vegetables. A chopping board may be pulled out from one end, while another could be on the countertop. The workspace gets its illumination via overhead lights, recessed light or track lighting. Some even have small fridges, microwaves and cookers.
An island doesn’t have to stop at waist level. With the proper planning and home design, you can build in a bank of cabinets above. Perfect for displaying crystal stemware and bone china or simply stashing oft-used utensils, this special storage will open up a world of possibilities in your kitchen.
Some islands are for preparing food. Often they have a prep sink or a kitchen cook top in them. This can be a good area to put an under-counter microwave or a wine fridge in also.
This type of island is much larger than a moveable cart and provides counter space for meal prep and typically a seating area. Built-in kitchen islands that include plumbing and electricity can cost anywhere from $2,000 up.
If your dream kitchen incorporates an island, and you’re worried you just don’t have room, think of other options, like a mobile island on castor wheels that can be moved about the space, or an island that’s only 18” deep and a bit shorter than most.
